It did not seem a 1 itter taak To meet so calmly?these who had Keen lover? once; yet 'ueath the mask Each longing heart beat chill and s Divided thus; apart they go Who, joined, had knewu most periei Ah ! Life hath many a cruel woe, But none mere hard to bear than tb ?Mil I IM i ?1 LOTE," Nellie Vallance walked out little church in P-with a step and a light heart; she had j come Mrs. Lloyd Whitlow. Tl band was fine looking, moral, gent, possessing friends wher chose to make them, and was c< ed the most popular man in the Nellie was a pretty little crcatur an innocent face and a smooth, white brow, and light waves of fi which,with her clinging.child-lik made of her au indescribably cli tolde. They made the bridal tour, an tied down in Louisville, a very couple. Yet,ere two mouths hat edaway, the little wile sat over tasted breakfast with a tearful e^ pouring lips, giving vein at last I rent ot tears. 1 iVbat in the world is the m ?uquredCousin Kate from ncio table. 'I?-Ielieve Lloyd is getting t me,' answered Nellie, sobbing. ?Nonsense, Nell; yon always such a sensativc-plant. I can that you have any cause to make an assertion.' 'But I have. This is the i morning that he has gone off w kissing me, and?aud that's en ou make mc know he does not love he did.' 'You ought to remember that husband is ouc of those who attac tie importance to outward show < fcction. 1 am sure he does not you less because he forgets those lover-like attentions which, aftei arc of little consequence when oi sure of a husbaud's affections.' ?But I am not at all sure; that is it. Aud this very day 1 am goir. begiu to test his love for mc, If I succeed in making him jealous I'll heve he loves me.' ?Rather a difficult game to Cousin Nell. How ore you going i it?' 'Oh, it's easy enough. You re?r her Albert Weston? He is pract law here in Louisville. I believe he posscses enough of the old affet for me, and just about little print enough to make him useful in this i: ter. His manner when I have met has annoyed me beyond measure, make use of it now.' ?Well, Mrs. Nellie Whitlow, a have to say is, that you will very li regret the day you planned this fot little game.' To tlr.s Nellie ouly answered,? 'I'll write this minute aud accept his invitation to drive this evening.' Lloyd Whitlow was home that ui befors Nellie returned. When at she did come she was iu highj spu giving aa a reason, when her husb rallied her upon the fact, that she 'such a glorious drive with her old 1 ur.' 'Look out, little wife-,'he said wil laugh, 'you threw that 'old lover' o for me; don't go to throwing me over him.' 'Ob, stranger things have happened she answered. The conversation ended iu maki the- husband unusually quiet and I wife unusually gay. 'Darling,' Lloyd said, laying do1 his book one evening, about a mou afterwards, 'are you actiug discreel in receiving Mr. Weston here as oft as you do?' 'I hope so, Lloyd.' 'Well,' he said, leaning oyer and loe ing in his wife's eyes, 'ouc ought n to care for old lovers. I suppose, whi one is sure that he is the only lov now.' 'Uh!' thought Nellie, 'he is wakii up at last.' But she answered with little laugh, 'don't you be too sure that.' He resumed his book immediate] and looked very grave, while the ligl danced in Nellie's eyes as she ?aid I herself, T believe my plan will su ceedl* 'Nellie-,' s;r-' 'icr Cousin Kate, as %h entered the par??, hurriedly,a few wee! hit 11', and interrupted her in the mid: of :?ueld love song, while Mr. Wcsto was bending over her at the piano, 'ex eise my troubling you, but I must m you a moment.' Weston took out his watch, said h ought to have gone half hour a?o, bad them good evening, and left. Well, Katie-, what is It. What Bl you looking so frightened about?' inqu'n ed Nellie. 'Nellie Whitlow, you have gone fa enough In your'test!' As 1 came in lb front door Lloyd passed mc going out I never saw such z look on a man's face He came from the back parlor,and mus have heard all you said. Oh, Nell ! what did you say that caused him ti leave looking like that? Did you kuov he was there?' 'Of course I did; but Westoti did no and Lloyd did not know that I knew it So I concluded to finish up my task this evening. I dit] not commit niysclf,eilh er; I only let Weston talk his nonsense without rebuking him. Bo, if you think Lloyd is really jealous, I'll atop., for] am very tired, and to-night I'll tell him all about it. and laugh at him. I be? lt t-vc he loves me now, Kate, and I am not a bit sorry for what I done.' 'You may be bel?n you aJC tin Lloyd Whitlow is not a man to t fled with, as I have told you doze tunes; put you would have your way.' l'hat evening the wife, who promised herself ss much happin confessing all to her husband,was mg the floor, back and forth, lie were quivering,her hands working vously.aud her lace was white and begone as three hours of suspense agony could make it. Lloyd had returned. The clock struck tw With Ihc first chime she threw h prostrate on the floor. ?Oh my love, my darling !' she < 'so generous, so ready to shield how cau I live without you? And you gone?gone away, bclierin'j guilty? Oh, how utterly wasted my life be without 30U*!' She lay these uutil morning, wee convulsively at intervals, and chi with the flood of sorrow and rcm And then another thought took po siou of her. Suppose some harm ? come to him! She could endure hi I proaches, his desertion, even, but n the sight of him wounded or dead ?her sake. She would bear bet SMI. j no longer, she said; she could knov j worst by going to his office and qucs ing the clerks, and go she would. ? Before she reached the street a i vant handed her a letter. 'Left, here for you this mor ' maam.' Nellie retraced her steps hurra and with trembling fingers opened husband's1 note. It was written : evening before. 'I am going down the river for a | days, to stay until 1 conclude how | arrange affairs between OS. I shall ? steps to give ysu back your freed ? Uutil then, try to act discreetly.' That was all; not even a reproach Hewing of her what he did; only c constrained Herds. And the bitter ' to her was that she knew her hui-bai forbearance grew out of hit great 1 for her. A week passed; she never Hautet remember how. ?Have you beard from Mr. Whiilo she aeked agaiu of his clerk, as she 1 dose every daj since he left. 'Yes: just received a letter. He m Leavenworth.' Nellie turueiJ away with a 'Tin you,'and a lighter heart than she 1 known for many a day. She decided itantly to go to him, believing that : could make all right if she could oi see him. Four o'clock found her route for the village un the Ohio, board the Grey Eagle. There was excursion party on board for the sai place, from whence they were gsiDg Wyandotte Cave. Many of her i quaintunccs were in the party, a among them was Westou. On arr ing at Leavenworth sliclound that 1 husband had gone on down the rivi but would rcturu in a day or two. Her friends urged her to join the pi ty. She was willing to do anyth'u to pass away the lime ttiat must elap before her husband came, so we with them to explore tin renown cave. They hud not been gone an houi win Lloyd Whitlow returned le the Leave worth. Learning that one of the par just gone had been anxious to sec hir started after them on horseback, litt thinking that his wife was of the part yet faintly hoping that he would hci from her. He overtook ihem just ? they had arrived at Blue river. He wi astonished at seeiug his wife there,an only recognized her by a distant bov lie supposed that Wcstou's present, was the eausu oi hers. The lording-place was a little hig now from recent rains; the water wa muddy, too, so one could not see th bottom, which right there was a levt rock extending across the stream, an was several yards wide, but which ha an offset of a number of feet, yet in th muddy, high water it wai safe euougi if one kept one's eye on the road at th other side and drove straight for it. Lloyd was going over last; so Nell) waited purposely to go in the last bug gy load. They were not half over be fore the horse, frightened at the splash , ing ot the water behind it, reared, plun ged, upset the buggy in the deep water aud left the driver and Nellie in a fai I way to be drowned.?the driver helpei | himself; Lloyd was at Nellie's side in ai instant. To Nellie, the chill of the wale j seemed like the visible presence o death. She did not scream; she be ; licved she would drown, and the onl" ! pang to her was the thought that shi would die unreconciled to her bosbend Bat the thought had scarcely beconn one ere the stiong arms and nerves o Llojd Whitlow had saved her. II? heai t went out toher when he caught sight of her bloodless face turned so be? seechingly toward him.?They stood alone on the ledge of rocks in the mid? dle of the water. Nellie i-poke flrstl 'Lloyd,' she said, 'you will forgive me. I am not so guilty as you suppose. I love you, so I conic down here to find you. And oh, Hoyd,' as she ?aw his face softening toward her, 'you do love inc. too; you cannot say no !' He laid his hand over the little Au? gers quivering so piiiously, remember? ed himself, and drew away. His voice was hard as he said: T might have, listened to ysu, and be? ieved an explanation possible, if I had not found you with him to-day.' ?Thcu why did you not let me die?' ?he moaned. '?Vhy dil you save mj life to torture nie?' Aud she commenced sobbing. 'Woman, this is n< ting. Have done with it!'was the husband's only un ? Bwer. Her excited sobs came faster. A gleam of pity cam? into his cyea; he hurried with her to the shore, wrapped her iu shawls provided by the company, placed her in a carriage and told the driver to hurry with lier to the hotel, six miles distant; he would follow on horse? back. As he put her out of his arms, her great pleading eyes were turned toward him, searching for seme look of affection, some faint recognition ef all that she had been to him. But finding none, the anguish ef her disappoint? ment broke forth in a single word? 'Lloyd!' To his dying day lie never forgot that cry. A slight quiver about the mouth, a swift quailing of the eye were all the siugns ho gave that he heard her. She knew tha', all was over botween them. One thought took possession of her : to act so that the campany would suspect nothing. So she declared herself re? stored upon their arrival at t!?e hotel, aud insisted upen coing with the party into the cave. At one o'clock they started, with lighted candles and guides. Weston kept near Nellie; Whitlow wa8 here there, everywhere. Ho had become interested at last iu some magnificent stalactites and his party cot far ahead of him. He discovered this and hurried after them. He could sec their lights ?u the distance. When nearly up to ' them his can'dlc went out. He went sauntering along until he camo within hearing of the two nearest him, aud he recognized his wife and Westen. 'You cannot deny,' Weston was say? ing, 'that yeu have encouraged mc to think that you cared for me, Nellie, and by heaven, you shalt not say me nay !' 'I confess to having done wrong. I was so afraid 1 did not possess my hus? band's whole heart that I determined to test his love for me by trying to make him jealous." 'So you made a cat's paw of mc !? Ycry kind iu you. May I ask what prompted you to select me?' 'Because you were respectable enough iu the eyes of the world to make it look right, and you were unprincipled enough to make it practicable, and heartless enough to have uo feeling iu the matter. ? 'Then you love your husband?' 'Love him?' 1 u.olize him! I would give my life to occupy the place in bis heart I did a month ago. I love him so well that I cannot Imagine how heaven can be heaven to me without him ! 'That is enough, Mrs. Whitlow. 1 believe that you will enjoy yourself more in his company than in mine; so I will step ahead and send him back to you.' Weston went on, when out of the darkness a pair of arms encircled her. Nellie looked up, terror-stricken, and saw the face of her husband, wearing so different a look that she knew he had beard all. "Nellie, darling, you are my own pure wife alter all, but you were very, very ?nd:?crcet.' 'I was trying to make you jealous.' 'And \ou succeeded with a venge? ance. I never thought my love needed that trial.1 'lint you acted so differently from what you did before we were married.' 'I v\:i? your lover theu. ?Nellie.' 'Y. s, Lloyd,' she-aid. as she clung closer to him; 'and yon arc infinitely more to me now?you arc my my hus? band.' 'I believe I understand you,' he said with a smile. "What you ask is easily given ; suppose I commence now,' and Lloyd Whitlow clasped his little wife to his breast aud nearly covered her with kisses. 'Thank God, Lloyd, that we under? stand each other! I will repayyou the pain I have cost you by a lifetime of devotion. 'Which I must eucourago by a little petting now and then eh?' 'Yes, Lloyd, please.' That excursion party thought in the morning that Mr. and Mrs. Whitlow were the most mattar-of-fact bride and groom they ever saw; but concluded in the ?vening that they were the most devoted. Nellie's adyice to newly married wives is don't test your husbands' love. The Rev. Henry Ward Beechcr, a while ago vent toa hotel iu a city of New Jersey for a night's stay. He ordered topper, and after taking a few sips ol coll'ce, called the colored waiter and said: 'Can you give me your ser? vice th.s evening?' 'Yes, sah,' said the waiter briskly. 'The matter is one of importance,' said Mr. Beechcr, solemn? ly. 'Perhaps 1 had better speak to the laudlord myself about it.' "Oh, no, sab,' said the sable attendant, taltal of losing the thumping lee that the preach? er's earnestness foreshadowed. 'I can give you all the time you need.' "Well then,' said Mr. Beechcr, with added solemnity, 'I want you to sit up to? night with this coffee. It is so weak it is going to die before morning.' There was a moment of pathetic sileuco, and the waiter withdrew. A clever youth, according to the Ilarttord Times, is a little five-year-old boy, residiug with his parents in the Cheney block. He was asked by a lady, a few days since, for a kisa, aud immediately complied; but the lady, noticing that the little lellow drew l?a hand acres s his lips, remarked: 'Ah, but you are rubbing it oil.' "No, I ain't," was the quick rejoinder; 'I'm rubbing itin!?

A Fatal flung?-. A YOUNG LADY FALI.3 125 KEKT. Dinoman's Fkrry, Pa., Sept. 12.? Bushkill, a popular summer resort, is situated on the Pennsylvania sank of the Delaware river. Thirty miles from this place, within a circle of a few miles, are numerous waterfalls and cataracts, the most prominent amsDg them being the Big Bushkill Fall, situated in the moun? tains, two miles northwest of the vill? age on the Bushkill creek. For this cataract, Mr. George Compton, pro? prietor of the summer boarding Louse near the Delaware Water Gap, accom panied by his wife, daughter and several guests, started on Saturday morning last. ReachiDg Bushkill, the party set out on foot for a tor.r of inspection. Having visited all the smaller places of interest, the Bushkill Falls were sought. Arriving at the cataract the party sepa? rated, some going further up the stream Mr, Compton, wife and daughter?the latter a beautiful and accomplished young lady?and one other gentleman stopped near the head of the fulls to take a rest. While resting, Miss Comp? ton carelessly proceeded to the edge of the rocks and peered down into the sethmg waters 125 feet below. As she leaned over she lost hrr balance, and uttcriug a piercing scream for help, she plunged headlong into the rocky abyss. Her mother, almost wild with grief, wrung her hands, and was only pre? vented from jumping into the cataract after her daughter by the terrified father and the gentleman who accompanied them. While the latter held the ago? nized mother Mr. Compton hastened to the foot of the falls, to find his un? fortunate child feebly combating with the rough billows and struggling to reach the shore. Without a moment's hesitation he jumped into the stream, and after a desperate struggle succeeded in rescuing he. A physician was im? mediately summoned, who pronounced her injuries of a fatal nature. The girl was bv this time unconscious, aud her body was bruised and mangled from head to foot. She was taken to her home, and at last accouuts was slowly sinking, with no possible chance for re? covery. Alexander Ramill?n, During the administration of Jeffer? son, Alexander Hamilton was killed in a duel by Aaron Burr. Ilia sou, John C. Hamilton, gives to a correspondent of '.he Philadelphia Times this pathetic iucident of his father : ''The day before the duel I was sit? ting in a rsora, when, at a slight noise, I turned around aud saw my father in the doorway, standing silent there aud looking at me with a most sweet and beautiful expression of countenance. It was full of tenderness and without any of the business pre ?occupation he some? times had. "'John,' he said, when I had dis? covered him, 'won't you come aud sleep with me to-Dight ?' "His voice was frank, as if he had been my brother instead of my father. That night 1 went to his bed, and in the morning very early he awakened me, and taking my hands in bit palms, all four band? extended, he said, and told me to repent, the Lord's Prayer. Seventy-five years have since passed over my head and 1 have forgotten many things, but not that tender im? pression when he stood looking at me through the door, nor the prayer we made together the morning before the duel." Married Lire. Julius Moser gives the following counsel from a wife aud mother : "I try to mak? myself and all around me agreeable. It will not do to leave a man to himself till he comes to you; to take no pains to attract him, or to appear before him with a long face.?? It is not so difficult as you think, dear child, to behave to a husband so that he shall remain forever iu some meas? ure a husband, lam an old woman, but you can still do what you like; a word from you at the right time will not fail of its effect ; what need have you to play the suffering virtue? The tear of a loving girl, said an old book, is like a dewdrop toa rose ; but that on the cheek of the wife is a drop of poison to the husband. Try to appear cheer, ful and contented, and your husband will be so, and when you have made him happy you will become so?not in appearance, but in reality. The skill required isnot so great. Nothing flat? ters a man so much as the happiness of his wife ; he is always proud of him? self as the source of it. As soon IB you arc cheerful lie will be lively and alert, and every moment will afford you an opportunity to let fall an agreeable word. Your education, which gives you au immense advantage, will great? ly assist you, and your sensibility will become the noblest gift that nature has bestowed on you. when it shows itself in affectionate assiduity, aud stamp? on every actlou a soft, kind and lender character, instead of wastiug itself in secret rcpinings.

Intone of the towns of England there is a beautiful little chape!, and a very touching little story is told iu connec? tion with it. It was built by an infidel. He had a praying wife, but he would not listen to her ; would not allow her pastor even to take dinner with them, would not look at the Bible, would uot rllow religion to be talked of. She made up her mind, seeing that she could not .'utlueuce him by her ?voice, that everyday she would pray to God at twelve o'clock for his salvation, she said nothing to him. but every day at that hour she told the Lord about her husband. At the end of twelvemonths there was no change in him. But she did not give him up. Six months more went past. Her faith began to waver and she said. '"Well I haye to give him up at last ? Perhaps when I am dead, He will answer my prayers." When she had got to that point, it 6eemed just if God had got her where he wanted her. The man came home to dinner one day. His wife was in the dining room wailing for him, but he didn't come in. She waited sonic time, and finally looked for him all through the house. At last flic thought of going into the little room whore she had pray? ed so often. There he was praying at the same bed with agony, where she had prayed for so many months askiug forgiveness for his sins. And tbil II a lesson to you wives who have infidel bosbands. The Lord saw that woman's faith and answered her prayers. The most common error of men and women is that of looking for happ outside of usual work.

'Mister, no doubt yoa Iiave all tlie |i arum' that's required in a schoo'? teacher, but it wants muro than learnin' to make a mm able to teach school in Cranberry Gulch. \ou'll soon find that out if you try. We've had three who tried it on. One lays there in the pa? -yard; another lout his eyes and left; the last one opened school and left before noontime for the beuetlt of hit health. He han't been back since. Now you're a llsoder build, and all your learning will only make it worse, tor all our youug folks are roughs, and don't stand no nonsense!' This was what tie trustees of the dfs? tr'.'t said to my friend Harry Flotee when he made application for the vacatit position of teacher. 'Let me try. I know 1 am slander, bat I am tOttgh, and I have a stiouz will,' said Hurry. 'Just as you like! There's the school honse, and I'll bar? nettes given if you want it done.' laid the trustee. ?1 do!' said Harry. 'An 1 I'll open next Monday at 0 A. M.' The notice was given, aud there was a good deal of excitement in the Qolcb and along the Yoba flats. More than tktv young people of both sexes made an excuse to drop iulo the tavern to get B tight at the fellow who thought he could keep school in that district, and man] a contemptuous glance fell on the ?lender form and youthful face of the would-be teacher. Eight o'clock on Monday morning came, and HsrryFlotee went down to the school-house with a key in one hand aud a valise in the other. ?Ready to slope if he finds we're too much for him,' said a cross-eyed, broad shouldered fellow of eighteen. The s:hool-housc was unlocked, and | the teacher went to the desk. Some of the young folks went in to see what he was going to do, though school was not called. Harry opend his valise and took out a large belt. Then, after buckling it around his waist, he put three Colt's navy revolvers there, each of six barrels and a bowie knife eighteen inches in blade, -Thunder! He means business.' mut? tered the cross-eyed chap. The new teacher now took out a square card about four inches each way, walked to the other end of the school house, and tacked it upagaiastthe wall Returning to his desk he drew a revol? ver from his belt, and quick as thought sent ball after ball into the card, till there were six balls in a spot not much larger than a silver dollar. By this timo the school-house was half lull of large boys and girls. The little oues were afraid to come in. Then the teacher walked half way down the room with the bowie-knife in uii hand, and threw it with so true a hand that it stuck quiveriug in the Very center of the card. He left it there, and put two more knives of the -ame kiud iu his belt, and quietly re-loaded his yet smoking pistsl. ?Hing the bellj I am about to open school.' He ?poke to the cross-eyed boy. the bully of the crowd, and the boy; rung the bell without a word. 'The scholars will take their seats ; I open school with prayer,' lie said sternly, live minutes later. The H-holar-- sat down, silent, ahnest breathless. After the prayer the teacher cocked a revolver and walked down on the floor. ?Wc will arrange the classes,'hesaid. 'All who can read, write, and spell wi 1 rise. Of them we will form the first Ouly six got up. He escorted ?thtm (oupperseats. And then he began to examine the rest. A whisper was beard behind lira, lu a second he ,1. revolver in hand. ?\ . whispering allowed here! he .liundered; aud ter SA instant his re? volver Lay ou a level with the cross? eyed boy's head. 'I'll not do so any more,' gasped the bully. ?See yon do not I never give a sec? ond warning,' said the teacher, and the revolver fell. It took two hours to organize the B, but when done they were well organized. Then came recess. The teacher went oat, too, for the room was crowded and hot. A hawk was circling overhead high in the air. The teacher drew a revolver, and the next second the hawk came tumbling down among tb< wodeting scholars. From that day on Harry kept scliool for two years iu Cranberry Gulch, his ?Hilarydoubled after the first quarter, ; and his pupils learned to love as well as te n t-poct him, and the revolvers went ! out of sight within a month. They had found a man at last who 1 could keep school. This is a fact. An Albany damsel asked one of her fellow-boarders, a stylish dry goods clerk, at the breaklast table: 'Why Is your mustache like my back hair?'He blushingly gave it up, when the answer caused him to blush still more: 'Be? hause it's all down.'
